Screen goes blank when I try to edit custom models metadata or sql query

Database: MySQL
Metabase Version: 0.43.0

Context: I have saved a model from an sql query.

Issue: When I attempt to edit metadata or edit the sql query the page goes blank.

Steps taken to try and resolve issue:

  1. Restart computer (problem persists)
  2. Sign out and back into Metabase (problem persists)
  3. Create another model to see if the same problem occurs (new model doesn't have this problem, original model still has the problem)

I turned the model back into a question, then saved it again as model and it seems to have fixed the issue. I can now edit the query and metadata without it going to a blank screen.

I don't know what caused the problem in the first place though or how to prevent it from happening again.

Hi @pjhaberman
Upgrade to 0.43.1:
Without having the metadata of the problematic Model, then it won't be possible to understand what caused this.

I'm seeing this too, on cloud, v1.42.4. Looking forward to the 1.43 upgrade tomorrow, hopefully that fixes it!

@snarfed I haven't been able to reproduce the blank column, which sounds very different from "screen goes blank", which sounds like a complete frontend exception.
I'm quite sure the blank sidebar is caused by visibility, so Metabase selects the wrong field, which has an open issue: - upvote by clicking :+1: on the first post
